Organic Hojicha Chai

Hojicha Chai from Eden Foods. . . . .

It’s been awhile since I’ve had Chai tea. Lately I’ve been drinking a lot of Tulsi herbal and ginger teas. I’m working on living a mostly caffeine free life, which can be a struggle at times. I was excited to try this Hojicha Chai because it is made with green tea, which of course is lower in caffeine than black. After checking their website, I was pleased to learn that this teas is made from larger leaves that have begun to lose their caffeine strength! Total win! I could smell the spices through the packet, and they smelled divine. I Read More

Passion Mango Ginger Kombucha from Reeds. . . .

Reeds has been one of my favorite kombuchas for awhile. I came across a flavor I’ve never tried, passion mango ginger on a clearance sale at the grocery and bought five bottles. I knew that since it was Reeds it was a safe bet. I just tried one this morning, and man is it delicious! The ginger flavor is a real stand-out, so if you don’t like ginger this is not for you. I taste ginger first, and then a wonderful fruitiness from the mango, passion and orange juice. Something that I like about Reeds kombuchas is that it’s made Read More

Orange Cookies Tea from Kent & Sussex Tea Co.

A few quick questions for you guys: 1. Is there anything more delightful than cookies dunked in tea? I think not. 2. Is there anything more delightful than tea that tastes like cookies-dunked-in-tea? NOPE. 3. Am I boring you with my incessant questioning? Wait. Don’t answer that. If you could tell from my aforementioned poll-taking, this tea is delightful. Truly. The dry leaf smells like a confection straight from The Great British Baking Show (can you tell what I’ve been Netflix-bingeing lately?), and brewed, it’s even more delightful. This tea reminds me of a citrus chai, but with a warm, Read More

Pomegranate Mojito Green

Pomegranate Mojito from Zest Teas. . .

I have to admit I was scared to try this. I’ve never had a mojito, and I never liked rum when I did drink so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I brewed this into iced tea because it just seemed like it needed to be served cold. As soon as the warm water hit the sachet, I got a wonderful fruity smell that made me wish I was at the beach. I felt instantly safe and eager to try this. I added no sweetener, just brewed it into my iced tea container and chilled it overnight. When I had Read More

Enjoying A Pumpkin Tea. . . .Out of Season! #bluebirdteaco.

There is literally no “wrong” time of year for pumpkin spice. I will never let such trivialities come in the way of a delicious taste or a review thereof. Feel free to pat me on the back for journalistic integrity. I boogey to the beat of my own drummer. Go ahead. Incorporate this into your own life. Drink tea “out of season.” Wear white after labor day. Wear black in the summer. Have visible panty lines. Go to a water park in the winter. Celebrate Halloween with a Gothy holiday tree. Adopt a squirrel and wear it as a hat. Read More
